How do I find the will of God, is a common question of all believers, especially the youth.

Helpful answers include the following, which has to do more with "being" than "doing".  This also assumes the person in question, has been born again. Because without the new birth, no one can do the will of God


1. Moral and purity/character

  • Romans 12:1-2  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove (discern) what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
  • 1 Thessalonians 4:3-4    For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor,


2. Thankfulness

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:18    in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


3. Submission to authority

  • 1 Peter 2:12-15  Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme,  or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.  For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men


4. Submission to God, even if hard and one suffers for simply being a Christian

  • 1 Peter 4:19   Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.
